Of these students, 10 residents achieved a 100% success rate in their studies finishing semester 1 with a GPA of 7.

Congratulations to Ella Murray (The Selwyn & Strathaird Award), Alicia Kirk (Gus Gehrmann Award) and Richard Sanderson (The Leo Howard Award) for your outstanding ongoing academic achievements.
It is fantastic to see so many outstanding academic results and is testament to the hard work and dedication our Senior Resident Tutor, Corey Lehmann and our Dean of Students, Mey Orchard, put into our College tutorial program. It is great to see residents taking advantage of this fantastic program offered by Union College at no additional cost. During Semester 1, 45 dedicated tutors delivered tutorial support for 160 subjects to help our residents achieve their best possible results. We look forward to seeing more outstanding results at the end of Semester 2!
